Newbridge Academy is pleased to announce that Parker Stewart will be joining the Varsity Prep team this season. Parker, a grade 12 student, is from New Glasgow, NS.
Parker began playing hockey at the age of 4 and grew up playing in both the Pictou County and Moncton minor hockey associations. Two seasons ago, he attended Kings Edgehill school and played with the varsity team. Last season, he made the jump to junior hockey, playing with the Essa Stallions in the CPJHL. He was a key member of the team, notching 52 points in 46 games, and was also selected to play on the league All-Star team that travelled to Las Vegas to play in the WSHL shootout. As a result, he was drafted by the New Jersey Rockets of the USPHL (NCDC).
Head Coach, Matt Anthony had this to say: “I am very excited to add a player of Parker’s caliber to the team. He possesses high-end offensive skills, but also has the ability to play an in-your-face brand of hockey. I think he will bring some much valued versatility to our forward group. Also, as a senior, he will be looked to for leadership on and off the ice.”
Parker, like other student-athletes, decided to attend Newbridge not only for the athletics, but for the academics: “I have made the decision to return to prep school hockey to complete my grade 12 year. I am very excited to play for Coach Anthony and to have Newbridge Academy help me succeed academically so that I can pursue playing NCAA hockey in my future.”
Welcome to Newbridge, Parker!
